SYMPOSIUM – ORGANISED BY: RCOT-SS WORK-SOM-VRA
Location: Fazeley Studios, 191 Fazeley Street, Digbeth, Birmingham B5 5SE
A multidisciplinary symposium which aims to explore how Good Work for Good Health can be influenced and supported.
Understanding the meaning of Good Work and what role you can play as a Practitioner is essential when supporting people into and back to work. In 2006 Waddell and Burton identified that work could be good for individuals’ health if the work was good. The importance of Good Work and job quality has since been extended for example, with research by the Work Foundation that seeks to support Good Work practices for both workers and employers. This research will be shared at the symposium.
In addition, the Taylor Report of Modern Working Practices was published in 2017. In response to this report, the Carnegie UK Trust have put forward recommendations for a framework to measure Good Work. This framework will be considered at this symposium and include aspects of health, safety and psychosocial wellbeing.
